First or Last Love?
11 June 2009 | by pi-imdbSee all my reviews

I would like to add a simple comment.

Italians, who are optimists, aesthetics, and see the world, and the life, as a victory of "il bello" over "il brutto" (the beautiful over the ugly), called this movie "Il Primo Amore" (The First Love).

French, who are pessimists, ethics, and see the world, and the life, as struggle between "le bien" and "le mal" (the good and the bad), called this movie "Le Dernier Amour" (The Last Love).

This was a story of a young woman and an old man: her First Love, and his Last Love.

A Must!
